Members-Only Screening: Little Wing


Members-Only Screening: Little Wing

You’re invited to join us for a theatrical screening of Little Wing, including an in-person conversation with executive producer/director Dean Israelite, producer Naomi Despres, writer John Gatins and executive producer/journalist Susan Orlean, moderated by Jenn Wilson (Senior Programmer, Film Independent).

Inspired by the New Yorker article by Susan Orlean, Little Wing follows Kaitlyn (Brooklynn Prince), a teen who is reeling from her parents’ divorce and the pending loss of her home. She and her best friend (Che Tafari) hope to solve her mother’s (Kelly Reilly) financial woes by stealing a valuable bird, but Kaitlyn instead forms a bond with the owner (Brian Cox) that leads her to a new outlook on life.

From Paramount+, Little Wing is streaming exclusively on Paramount+.
